Both fighters have experienced success in the ring, and a consistent rise in the rankings, as David Light is ranked number 6 by the WBO, and Brandon Glanton is ranked number 7. When Glanton and Light meet up inside the squared circle, they will both risk their undefeated records and the opportunity for a future showdown with WBO champion Lawrence Okolie.

This upcoming bout is a high-stakes type of match as the winner will continue his pursuit of a WBO cruiserweight title shot, and the loser will have to take a step back and regroup. Glanton admitted on multiple occasions that the WBO champion Lawrence Okolie is on his radar, but before he can focus on the man who has the WBO strap, he must direct his attention to his upcoming opponent.

A native of Atlanta, Georgia, cruiserweight contender Brandon Glanton has found a boxing home on the ProBox TV streaming platform. Glanton has made multiple appearances on ProBox, and as a result, his notoriety is starting to spread.

Glanton is a hard-hitting fighter who is most comfortable when he’s standing in the pocket, trading shots with his opponent. The 30-year-old is very good with his punch placement, and he also does a nice job of turning his body when he throws his shots.

Back in July 2022, Glanton had an action-packed bout against DeShon Webster. The fight was fought primarily in close quarters as Glanton wore Webster down with pressure. He landed a three-punch combination to knock Webster down in the fourth round, and he forced the referee to put a halt to the contest in the following round by knocking Webster down two additional times.

Eight weeks later, Glanton was back in the ring to battle Mario Aguilar. Glanton started the match by utilizing a rare jab, but he quickly transitioned to his normal phone booth style of fighting. Aguilar displayed an incredible chin in the first round as he absorbed a number of flush shots from his opponent.

In the second round, Glanton pinned Aguilar in the corner and landed a flurry of shots to the head. The referee proceeded to step in to try to stop the contest, but while attempting to put a halt to the match, the referee was hit with a left hook from Aguilar.

As the referee allowed the match to continue, Mario Aguilar started throwing big shots in an attempt to keep Glanton off of him. Aguilar was able to survive the headshots, but a Glanton left hook to the body is the punch that forced Aguilar to take a knee. Aguilar tried to get up, but he was unable to beat the referee’s ten count.

Now, after seventeen professional bouts, Brandon Glanton has traveled down the road to success, and he has placed himself in a position to be one win away from a possible WBO cruiserweight title shot. On fight night David Light plans on placing a detour on his opponent’s boxing journey and clearing his own path to a title opportunity by using his jab, controlling the distance, and boxing from the outside.

The winner of this bout isn’t guaranteed a shot at the WBO cruiserweight champion, but a victory on Friday, December 2, enhances the winner’s case in regards to being a deserving candidate for a championship opportunity.

The December 2 bout between Brandon Glanton and the New Zealand native David Light will air on the subscription-based ProBox TV app, which is now available for $1.99 per month or $18.00 for a year.
